Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I have little patience with organizations that purport to collect money for those who have suffered tragedy in their lives but which keep up to 90% of the money raised for "administrative costs."
I once told a salesman for a photo company that I couldn't have pictures taken of my children even though my wife and I very much wanted them, I had been wounded by a "castrator mine" in Vietnam. I was "sobbing" as I said this; NOBODY called again for three years. Now I'm on the "Do Not Call" list.
I've also told callers for political candidates that "I wouldn't vote for that goddamned Commie bastard if s/he were the only one running!" and then I launch into an imaginary speech about WHY the person is a "Commie." This is even more effective if they ARE the only one running as it confuses the caller.
I do like killing off my brothers, however. And they don't mind at all.
